I found this one in a foreign bin a while ago and still have no clue what it is. I want to say it's an Arabic coin of some sort but I just can't put my finger on it.

Close enough, biggfredd; the script is an archaic form of Hebrew. But unfortunately it's a modern replica of an ancient pre-Roman Judaean coin. Genuine coins with this design tend to look more like this.

Nice piece, nonetheless. With all the foreign coins I buy by the pound, I never get unique things.

Guess I need to go to a coin shop and dig through the bins for unusual things like this.
